What Should Homeowners Do When Their Home Floods?
A Professional Service Can Address Most Aspects of Restoring a Los Angeles Home After a Flood
In a flood zone in Los Angeles, homeowners may be watching the devastation from afar while staying in a safe place. Alternatively, floodwaters may enter the home with no warning, leaving no time to prepare. Regardless of how floodwaters make it into a residence, the result is disruptive. Experts need to coordinate and articulate the necessary steps following the entry of water into the home.
In Los Angeles, flood damage and its consequences can be left to our SERVPRO team to handle. Our water restoration technicians are ready to receive your call 24/7, and we jump into action as soon as it is safe to do so.

Should homeowners discard all personal items after a flood?
Flood waters carry bacteria and debris, so many items won’t remain in your home once our SERVPRO crew arrives. However, our technicians have at their disposal some options to restore items such as photographs, which may prove invaluable when you consider the damage in front of you. As we arrive with industrial-grade extractors and cleaners to remove excess water and remnants from your home, we can already start sorting those items we may want to preserve by using specialized techniques such as the ones below-
- Freeze-drying to preserve paper products through the principle of sublimation
- Drying chambers to remove moisture from electronics
- Ultrasonic technology to loosen the dirt by using sound waves
